Food allergens can be life threatening. If you have a food allergy, the only way you can manage it is to avoid the foods that make you ill.
The 14 most common food allergens (identified by the European Union) are:
- cereals containing gluten (including wheat, oats, barley and rye)
- eggs (including hen, duck, etc.)
- milk (including cows, goats, sheep, etc.)
- nuts (including almond, hazelnut, walnut, cashew, pecan, brazil, etc.)
- sulphur dioxide (above 10mg/kg in the finished product)
See allergen information for the latest menu.
Our Catering Service has a procedure to manage special dietary requirements for pupils in our primary schools. We are able to source a number of alternative products including:
- gluten free bread
- gluten free pasta
- dairy free margarine
Please speak to your school cook for more information.
Full allergen information is available at each High School, and is available by asking a member of our Catering Staff or by contacting the school.
